Now is not the time to have the discussion on banning these high capacity assault buses.
 
2013-07-28 07:24:02 PM
If they limited it to 7 passengers you'd have fewer casualties when they wreck. FACT.

Since this is in Italy, when can we expect the engineers to go on trial for not being able to forecast this?

Two groups of Christians, two bus crashes, in two days. I'm picturing the old Far Side cartoon where god is hitting the 'Smite' key on his keyboard.

A bus returning pilgrims from a weekend visit to a Catholic shrine went off a bridge in southern Italy on Sunday

Hopefully they were in a state of grace.

also dreamliner grounding took the day off so a helicopter crashed

I feel quite bad that I was subconsciously relieved this happened in Italy. Mountain roads ya know...

Mass transport deaths are now a thing but deaths from poorly driven cars isn't. Wait, what?
 
2013-07-28 09:01:58 PM
I mean, if the clock is worldwide, then I don't see why it isn't reset at least once a day.  The world is large and there are 7+ billion of us monkeys.  I have to wonder though, if there were 36 killed in a bus accident today, that averages out to what per year?  And how does that compare to vehicular deaths in personal autos, deaths due to attributable personal choices (i.e lung cancer due to smoking, diabetes due to over eating, etc), and what are my odds of dying from a bus accident compared to winning more than 1 million in the lotto or getting struck by lightning.

I can only assume that God hates Catholics.

And if they had no passengers, there'd be zero!

Of course, that would kind of make tour busses unnecessary, but you can't have everything....
 
2013-07-28 09:22:33 PM
Bus?  Italy?  No shiat, Sherlock.  I thought a train derailed into an orphanage or something.
 
2013-07-28 09:30:01 PM
The passengers had participated in a weekend pilgrimage to the Padre Pio shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo.

That place sounds fat...

/main memory of Italian buses: the "Direct" bus between Florence and Siena stops in two places in between; the "Rapid" bus goes direct to Siena.

They have some horrible steep twisty roads there.

If only there were some kind of a supreme being which could prevent things like this from ever happening
some kind of super power
some kind of a god

maybe they should have prayed??

Maybe they were praying to the wrong god and they were just making him angrier and angrier.

A bus returning pilgrims from a weekend visit to a Catholic shrine went off a bridge in southern Italy on Sunday, leaving at least 36 dead


Their God sounds like a dick.
 
2013-07-28 09:54:16 PM
So who gets to come up with a bunch of joke Italian names for the driver/staff and submit them to the local news?
 
2013-07-28 10:03:14 PM
Bad subby! You're only allowed to make death clocks when the leftist media tells you to! If you give the proles the idea they can start churning out the same propaganda we use, it will stop working... or worse, get used against us!

Ill second this.  XKCD seems to only be funny to a select few who seem to want to post it all over the place, some of it is funny, but i'm sure a lot of it is over peoples heads, including mine.  Unless your a true geek, most of it won't make sense anyways.

Your headline is bad, subby, and you should feel bad. Per passenger-mile traveled, the safest form of transportation is air, followed by rail, followed by bus. The least safe is the ultimate anti-public transportation, the motorcycle.

I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours but I think that God has a sick sense of humour...

Mostly twisty from what I remember. We even commented on how the roads were pretty much level, going through mountains and over valleys, but never in a straight line.

Statistically speaking, of course, it's still the safest way to travel.

It seems god hates religious people this month.

Thankfully, we can do with fewer religious idiots.

Two crashes, three dead? Seems not unreasonable.

My takeaway?

Don't go to religious festivals.

The world believes Jesus to be dead, and he must pretend to BE dead, until he learns to control the raging beast dwelling within him.
